in Westfield, NJ |
We met Dr. Minkowitz in pre-op after our 13 year old son sustained two severe fractures with compromised circulation to his foot. It was an urgent situation and he was rushed into surgery. Dr. Minkowitz restored circulation and repaired the fractures with two pins which were later removed. No permanent hardware was used. Our son's recovery was uneventful and he healed beautifully. He is back to playing sports and performs as if this never happened.

I met Dr Minkowitz of course under terrible circumstances. My then 5 year old broke his femur bone. First ER dr said he might need a rod in his leg. And then I met her she assured me she could fix this no rod at all but would have to wear a partial half body cast for 6 or so weeks. No incisions or anything she would minipulate the leg back togher in the OR. I have nothing but positive things to say about her. And her office staff is just as nice as she is. Would highly recommend her to anyone!!!

Dr. Minkowitz is an outstanding doctor and such a compassionate person. We took our 9-year-old son to her because he was complaining of leg pain. She diagnosed the problem quickly and accurately and, because we were eager to take care of it immediately, got him in for surgery 5 days later. The surgery was a total success, and our son was back on the soccer field 2 weeks later. We are so grateful to Dr. Minkowitz and her wonderful staff! I couldn't recommend her more highly.

Dr. Minkowitz is the most caring and compassionate doctor I have ever met. She accommodates for patients in every way she possibly can. Her staff is hardworking, extremely polite and helpful. It is a pleasure to work with her and every way. Her expertise is stunning and her patient care is remarkable. I recommend Dr. Minkowitz to everybody, you will find no other doctor like her.
